USATF response to WADA Independent Commission report

1/14/2016
 
Statement from USATF CEO Max Siegel on WADA Independent Commission Report:

“Today’s Independent Commission report reveals alleged activity that compromised the integrity of athletic competition and violated the rights of athletes, fans, federations and the integrity of the sport itself. USATF will continue to support the IAAF’s efforts to set a new course for its future and to clean up the sport in all areas, from anti-doping to ethics and governance.”


Statement from IAAF Council Member and USATF President Stephanie Hightower on WADA Independent Commission Report:

“As a newly elected member to Council, it is deeply disturbing to read of the alleged corruption at the very highest levels of the IAAF, as outlined in today’s Independent Commission report. It has been clear, since allegations first began to be made public, that the governance of the IAAF must change to become more transparent in order to ensure accountability and credibility. I agree with Mr. Pound that President Sebastian Coe is the person to lead the sport into a new era and put these types of allegations in our past, not our future.”
